Hey folks...I'm Graham Phillips, a 5th/6th grade science teacher from The Baldwin School right here in Bryn Mawr, PA.  I teach chemistry/physics, primarily, and have taught up to 8th grade in Science and up to 12th grade in Mathematics. 

 As you can see from my picture, I love to travel.  Can you guess where this was taken?  I also love singing and dancing (I probably would have become an actor if my head wasn't turned on so tight!)

Review

Science as loopy, story telling/revising rather than truth/facts

"I was intrigued when asked to decide rather or not the earth was round or flat. At first this seemed to be an easy question to answer based on what we are taught but by the end of the disscussion I was left questioning I had learned. We were given several more questions of this type and at the end I always questioned what I had been taught." .... Deidre

Genes, Brains, and Being Social

The Gregarious Brain
David Dobbs
New York Times Magazine, July 8, 2007
(excerpts for discussion)

"If a person suffers the small genetic accident that creates Williams Syndrome, [s]he'll live with some fairly conventional cognitive deficits, like trouble with space and numbers, but also a strange set of traits that researchers call the Williams social phenotype or , less formally, the 'Williams personality': a love of company and conversation combined, often awkwardly, with a poor understanding of social dynamics and a lack of social inhibition.
